Truth About Communism: Part IV

Karl Marx defined socialism as a pit stop between capitalism and communism. While sometimes this change happens slowly, it always ends badly. The quickest and worst example of this transition is Chairman Mao, the greatest mass murder of the 20th century. Mao Zedong used his power to crush the Chinese people in a merciless attempt to create a new socialist China. The majority of his crimes came in two distinct waves --- The Great Leap Forward, beginning in 1958, and the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s. In the end, an estimated 65 million Chinese had died by execution, imprisonment or forced famine.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: The story of America is really one of self-reliance and optimism. And profound faith. Not only in the context of religious freedom, but also in the unprecedented faith in the able to of human beings to control their own destiny. And while the spirit of personal responsibility was extraordinary, strong with our Founders, great patriots like Thomas Paine argued for redistribution of wealth right off the bat. Alexander Hamilton wanted a central bank. They wound up losing those battles, but there were plenty who kept on fighting.

The Constitution of the United States kept those dogs at bay for a better part of 200 years. But eventually, those seeking a different path than the ones the founders settled on, realized only way to really defeat the Constitution was for the people to stop reading it. Progressives realized victory required changing history. And to defeat them, we have to correct that.

Progressives know how powerful history is. When these truths are told and the lies get corrected, the game is going to be on. It's pulling the mask off, like Che Guevara. Che may make communism look cool and trendy, but the reality couldn't be more horrific and disgusting. These related political philosophies are not hip and are certainly not taken lightly. Karl Marx defined socialism as a pit stop between capitalism and communism. It isn't an end point. While sometimes this change happens slowly, it always ends badly. And perhaps never worse than with Chairman Mao. Mao used his power to crush the Chinese people. The majority his crimes came in two distinct waves.

Lee Edwards explained.

VOICE: From 1959 to 1961 was the so-called Great Leap Forward, which was actually a gigantic leap backwards in which he tried to collectivize and communize agriculture, and they came to him after the first year and said, Chairman, 5 million people have died of famine.

And he said, no matter. Keep going.

The second year they said 10 million Chinese have died.

And he said, no matter, continue.

The third year, 20 million Chinese have died and he said, finally, well, perhaps this is not the best idea that I've ever had.

VOICE: A survivor of the Mao regime recalls.

VOICE: When he was told his people were dying of starvation, Mao said educate the peasant to eat less. Death haze benefits. It fertilizes the land.

GLENN: Mao's approach turned from brutal indifference to revenge. With a cultural revolution, his messing was to destroy both enemies and intellectuals.

VOICE: Professors, teachers added in the corner with a dunce cap. They were made to get down on all fours and bark like a dog.

GLENN: Jung Chang and her family found themselves in Mao's crosshairs.

VOICE: My father was one of the few who stood up to Mao and protested the cultural revolution. My mother was under tremendous pressure to denounce my father. She refused. And so as a result, my mother was made to kneel on broken glass. She was paraded in the streets where children spat and threw stones at her. She was excited to a camp.

GLENN: When her father wrote to protest the cultural revolution, he paid the ultimate price.

VOICE: My mother tried to stop him. My mother said, you don't want to ruin the lives of your children. So he said, what about the children of the victims. As a result, he was imprisoned, touted, driven insane. He was exiled to a camp and died prematurely tragically.

GLENN: Has a victim of Mao's rushing rule. Jung Chang's father was not alone.

VOICE: Some 65 million Chinese died under Maoist communism.

VOICE: Mao just didn't care. And he said for all his project to take off, half of China may well have to die.

VOICE: By a ratio of three or four to 1, we certainly can say that Mao was the greatest mass murderer of the 20th century.

GLENN: Which makes this comment by former House White House communications director, Anita Dunn, so incredibly disturbing.

VOICE: Two of my favorite philosophers, Mao Zedong and Mother Teresa.

GLENN: Dunn's comments, once again, highlight the treatment that leftist totalitarianism receives by too many in our society. Communism is looked at as something we can borrow from, liberally, even today. But the truth is that it is among history's the most proficient killers.

VOICE: According to the Black Book of Communism published by Harvard University Press, nearly 100 million people died under communism in the 20th century. It all flows out of this idea that the communists think that they can create a new society. And anybody who gets in their way, they will cut down. They will kill. They will imprison. And they will eliminate in pursuit of that goal.

GLENN: This was an idea shared by more people than you would think. Including Nobel prize winner and famous playwright, George Bernard Shaw.

VOICE: Now we'll be kind of enough to justify your existence if you're not producing as much as you consume -- (indiscernible) more, then clearly we cannot use the big organization of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive, your life does not benefit us, and it can't be of very much use to yourself.

GLENN: And this was actually somewhat subtle for Shaw. He'd also foreshadowed some of the worst atrocities in our planet's history he wrote, I appeal to the chemists to discover a humane gas that will kill instantly and painlessly. In short, a gentlemanly gas, deadly by all means. But humane, not cruel.

VOICE: Jonah Goldberg, author of the liberal fascism, explains.

VOICE: People like George Bernard Shaw were convinced that overpopulation was this terrible, terrible problem particularly because the unfit, the genetically less desired, were watching the good genetic types. In the late 19th century, there are almost the cream of British intelligencia, embracing eugenics, well into the early 20th century, saying that thousands, millions had to be march off into gas chambers and liquidated.

George Bernard Shaw has this great line where he says, you know, we should do it while playing lovely classical music as we march them into the gas chambers. A lot of people seem to think that this concept of the gas chamber as a tool of social policy was invented by the Nazis. It wasn't. And I mean in this the most gusting, evil way. It was perfected by the Nazis. But the idea of using things like gas chambers to kill off millions of people so that the rest of the good guys could prosper and move to the sunny uplands of history was immensely popular.

GLENN: With 100 million killed, communism exists in a very exclusive club. Alongside the planet's worst communicable diseases like smallpox and the bubonic plague. But it's not just communism. It's the truth of any government with too much power. Some government is of course necessary. But too much is suicidal. Every all-powerful government has elements of what Marx called the revolutionary holocaust.

The relentless pursuit of nirvana. And the price it's worth paying to get there in human life.

It's only by understanding history that we can stop this from happening again and again and again.

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
